Presented by
Ottawa Music Bus & Spark Beer

hans!: To capture a feeling with music. To create an energetic, hot purple, flowing surprise. Ottawa multi-instrumentalist and creator hans!’ music is about tapping into a conversation about free emotional expression through art and innovation. It is about blazing forward through the flames of imagination, exploring and bringing inner visions to life. Inspired by French producers like Air, Daft Punk, and Phoenix, while drawing from his love of orchestral music, hans! style is built on self-production and breaking down walls that limit free creation.

PHASEZ: New Wave / Electronic artist releasing music in “PHASEZ”
